DFRobot_AS3935  1.0.2
DFRobot_AS3935

AS3935 Lightning Sensor can detect lightning and display the distance and intensity of the lightning without the disturbance of electric arc and noise. It can be set as indoor or outdoor mode.

Summary

Input commands and read data from AS3935 modules

  1. Lightning sensor warns of lightning storm activity within a radius of 40km
  2. Distance estimation to the head of the storm from overhead to 40km in 15 steps
  3. Detects both cloud-to-ground and intra-cloud(cloud-to-cloud) flashes
  4. Embedded man-made disturber rejection algorithm
  5. Programmable detection levels enable threshold setting for optimal controls
  6. Three i2c interfaces, switch freely to avoid site conflicts

Installation

To use the library, first download it to Raspberry Pi, then open the routines folder.To execute a routine demox.py, type Python demox.py on the command line.For example, to execute the control_LEd.py routine, you need to enter:

python DFRobot_AS3935_detailed.py
